INGS, WHICH ARE BESTOWED

A SCENE OF. GLORY MIXED
WITH PATE OS.
London. June 31.?Queen Victoria be?
gun the ceiebrntiou of her jubilee yester?
day, us wns befitting her entire career,
before the altar of her faith. Through?
out London tho United Kingdom, and
the empire. In every cathedral, church, or
chapel of the established 'Ch?rcji of Eng?
land was held services similar to those at
St. George's Chapel,"Windsor, where her
mnjesty paid her^devotions, and .offered
solemn thanks to God.
The announcement that tho services at
St. George's chapel would be private, and
for members of tho royal family, prevent?
ed ihtp gathering of a large crowd. The
scene was most impressive antl the ser?
vice very simple. Her majesty sat in a
chair of state Immediately iu front of the
communion rail and just beside the brass
place whose inscription designates the
spot which was the temporary place of
interment of the Prince Consort.
The ladies and gentlemen who are the
grand officers of the queen's household
entered first, followed by the Military
Knights of Windsor, in full costume of
cock hats and scarlet coats. The Duke
of Devonshiro and Lord TRosebery occu?
pied their stalls as knights of the garter.
The rest of the church was empty, the
seats of tho royal family being near the
The dean of Windsor wearing the inti*
nia of chaplain, olliciate.d, ussisted by the
Lord Bishop of Barrywnd several canons.
Punctually at 11 o'clock, amid the soft
strains of an organ voluntary the queen
arrived from tho cloisters at the entrance.
Assisted by her Indian 'attendant, she
walked slowly to the chair of Btate, ' tho
congregation standin?'. She was dressed
a'l in black, except for a white ^tuft in
her bonnet. Empress Frederick'of Ger?
many, attired in deep black, took the seat
at tho right of the queen, while the duke
of Connaught, wearing his 'Windsor uul
form, seated himself at her left. The
others grouped closely'hehlnd, and looked
very like a simple family of worshippers.
Among them;were *tho duchess of Can
naught, Prince Henry of Prussia aud
Princess Henry, Prince Christian aud
Princess Christian, with their children:
Princess Henry of^liattenberg. the grand
duke Sergius, and the Grand Duchess.
After the first collect, a special collect
was read,and, instead of the usual prayer
for the queen and royal family, two spe?
cial prayers were substituted, containing
"Almighty God, who rulest over all the
kings of tho world, and disposest of them
accordiug to Thy good pleasure, we yield
Thef unfeigned thanks, for that Thou
wast pleased to place Thy servant, onr
sovereign lady, Queen Victoria, upon the
throne of tho realm. Let Thy wisdom bo
her aid, and let Thy arms strengthen
her: let justlco, truth and holiness; let
peace and love flourish in her days. Di?
rect all her counsels 'and endeavors to
Thy glory, and the welfare of her people,
and give us grace *o obey '.her cheerfully.
Let her always possess the hearts of her
people; let her reign be long and prosper?
ous, and crown her with immortality in
the life to come."
A special prayer for unity was said,
and there were special psalms and gos?
pels used instead of those for the day, the
gospel being the sixteenth verse of the
twenty-second chapter of St. Matthew:
'Render, thereforr, unto Caesar the
things whioh are Caesar's."
There was no sermon, but a special
hvmn, written by Rt. Rev. William
Walsham. Lord Bishop of Wakefleld,
with music by Sir Arthur Sullivan, wns
sung at her majesty's request.
Before th?) benediction the following
special thanksgiving was offered:
"O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we give
Thee hearty thanks for "the many bless?
ings which Thou has bestowed upon us
during the sixty years of the happy reign
of cur gracious queen, Victoria. We
thank thee for progress made in "knowl?
edge of Thy marvelous works, for in?
crease of comfort civen to human life, for
kindlier feeling between rich and poor,
for wondrous preaching of the gospel to
many nations, and wo pray Thee that
these and Thy many gifts be continued to
us and our queen to the glory of Thy
Holy name, through Jesus Christ, our
The choir of St. George's chapel ren?
dered the musical portion of the service,
Sir Walter Barrett presiding at the or?
gan. The service lasted forty minutes,
the queen remaining seated throughout
and following closely the special prayers
At the end there was a pause." The
queen, with bowed bend, continued in
silent prayer. Then followed a tmching
scene, which will ever linger in tnc mem?
ory of those who witnessed it. Sum?
moning Empress Frederick, who bowed
low at her side, tho (lueen kissed her on
both cheeks. The duke of Connaught
and the others of the family followed,
receiving on bended knee a similar token
of affection. In many cases the recipient
was kissed several times.
The queen was profoundly moved, and
tears rolled down her cheeks. At last,
and evidently with groat reluctance, she
beckoned her Indian attendant, and lean
ing'on his arm, passed slowly out of the
chapel, the entire congregation standing,
the soft light falling through 'the multi?
colored windows and the exquisite strains
of the organ rising Tand swelling benrath
the Gothic-bannered roof. It was a scene
never to be forgotten and thrilled all
present with strong emotion-.

citizen could read Stephen Bonsnll's hook,
"The True Coudltion of Cuba Today,"
published on last Decoration Day by Har?

thar. the policy of Spain is to literally ex?
terminate the Cuban race by depot ration,
execution, concentration nnd purposely
caused starvation and pestilence.
The brutalities and horrors deliberately
inflicted by Spain and her demoniac Gen.
Weyler exceed those of the Spanish hor?
rors in the Netherlands in the seventeenth
century; and for these crimes the United
States is as morally responsible as If they
were committed within sight of the dome
of the Capitol. Until March 4 President
Cleveland's administration carried the

it has been patiently borne,tby a new nd

of Children" (page (17): "Under Gen.
Weyler there have been at least a thou?
sand assassinations of this order during
the last year."
The whole volume, which is carefully
written, is calculated to bring home to
every citizen of the United Slates a sense
of shame well expressed by Mr. Bonsall

THE MURDER OF CHILDREN.
"Von may be glad you were not here
yesterday morning, and if I had anything
to do or anywhere else to stay, 1 would
not be here to-day,"said the crippled ser?
geant, later on, as we met again at the
canteen. "The hermanltos, as we called
them, the brightest, merriest little boys I
ever saw, were shot in the ditch yester?
day morning They were not more thau
15 or 16 yenrs old< and how they came to
be with the rebels I do not know. We
were very fond of them, and tried to slip
in what food we could through the iron
bars of the gnlera, where they seemed so
out of place, where they never should
have been put, we thought, and so did
many of the officers. But were thoy
rebels? Well, they were, and red-hot
ones, and whenever the governor came
around on his inspection, they would al?
ways shout, 'Long live free Cuba,' aud
other deviltry, and that is why they had
to be shot.
"Well, they came marching out of the
chanol yesterday morning as pert as you
please, and hopping along with their
hobbles as cheerfully as though they
were going to a picnic, aud not to their
death. They were very much pleased
when the lieutenant said of course they
would die together: he woi Id hot separate
them. Then the eldest whispered im
ploriugly to the captain, and we thought
lie was going to give way, poor little
worm, and J would not have blamed h.m.
He should have been at home with ihs
mother, curled up iu her lap. But then
the captain answered loud and sharp.and
wo knew he had not been wavering. The
captnin said: 'What you ask 'is impossi?
ble 1 caunot have yonr'arms unbound.
I must obey orders, and you must fce
shot just as you are, nnd like all tho
other prisoners sentenced to death for re?
bellion." Then the little shap, who wan
not a year cider than his broihor, said:

So Think Republican Senators
About the Tariff Bill.
DIFFERENCES HAVE NOT BEEN
"HARMONIZED AND THE ADJUST?
ING OF THESE IS CAUSING THE
LEADERS MORE ANXIETY THAN
THE OPPOSITION TO THE BILL
IN THE SENATE?TOBACCO AND
WOOL GIVING THE MOST TROU?
Washington, Juno 21.?The Republi?
can Senators In charge of the tariff bill
begin to feel that the end is almost in
sight. They do not hope to conclude the
consideration of the bill by the close of
the present week,b??t they expect by'thnt
time to bn able to say when they can
complete the work.
As a matter of fact the difficulty of ad?
justing differences In their own party ia
causing the managers more perplexity at
present than Is the opeu opposition to the
bill in the Senate. It has been found al?
most impossible to harmonize the con?
tending forces among Republicans on the
tobacco and wool schedules. The differ?
ences on tobacco have been compromised,
though not to the satisfaction of all con?
cerned, ami if there should he another
caucus before ^the tobaccco schedule in
taken up In the Senate the question is
liable to he reopr ned tnere.
The wool schedule confronted the Son
ate at the opening of the session to day,
and it is Senator Allison's purpose to
press tho schedule forward to a close.
Hence it will be impossible to postpone
for a very much longer time the settle?
ment of the differences on this question.
It is expected that if ho committee should
not bo able to announce a determination
the matter wi'l be referred to an early
caucus, or a caucus may he called if the
committee fixes a rate that is not satis?
factory to the wool men. There is little
doubt that an advance will bo conceded
by tho committee, but the question of in?
terest Is whether tho increase will be all
that the wool men demand.
The wool schedule will, of course, give
rise to an animated debate, but the Dem?
ocratic Senators say there is no disposi?
tion on their part to needlessly prolong
it. Numerous articles on the free list in
the "sundry".schedule will arouse differ?
ences of opinion, and it the Republicans
do uot withdraw the internal revenue
features of tho hill there will be a sharp
clash over these. They are particularly
decided, however, to retreat from these
provisions. It Is also particularly de?
termined that the House provision tu re?
gard to Hawaiian sugar'wiU be.pontinued,
pending the disposition of the Hawaiian
For the rest, the question of reciprocity
and the problem presented by tho trusts
in connection with the taritl are still un?
determined by tho .Republicans the in
selovs, but there is no doubt that there
will be more or less general debate upon
any proposition agreed to when presented
in the Senate.

cerned. Come early, ladies and
